A true “Intro to quilting” class! This class will walk participants through a few basic piecing techniques on day one where we will construct the front of a fun, graphic wall-hanging. Day two will involve building a quilt “sandwich,” the actual quilting of the wall-hanging and finally the binding. Students will walk away with sound knowledge and the confidence to tackle new quilting projects on their own. Quilt size: 36” square

What to bring

  • Fabric. For the quilt top, you can choose to work in 2, 3 or 4 colours that work together in patterned or solid fabrics or a mixture of the two. Within those colours, choose fabrics of different values (light to dark). In total you need:
  • 1 metre very light fabric, ½ metre light fabric, seven fat quarters of medium to dark fabrics.
  • 1 metre fabric for quilt back
  • ⅓ metre fabric for quilt binding
  • A sewing machine (including a basic sewing foot, a ¼-inch foot and a walking foot)
  • A long acrylic ruler (6 or 6½ inches x 18 inches is ideal)
  • A 5-inch square acrylic ruler with a diagonal line (corner to corner) printed on it. If you have a hard time finding the right size, a 6” one will work.
  • A small personal cutting mat
  • A rotary cutter
  • Personal iron & ironing board (if possible)
  • Thread to match
  • Sewing scissors
  • Fabric pins
  • Pencil
  • 12-inch school ruler
